We recently found some absolutely gorgeous back-lit daggers of the 5x16mm size. If you were lucky enough to get one of our Dragon's Treasure Necklace kits last week, then you have some in one of the colorways.
Well, my creative "thinkingness" has been churning out ideas. And here we would like to present a very quick and simple project that makes great use of these.
These earrings use the same basic design as the necklace did and twirls around itself. This was knit with Kreinik's Tapestry Braid #12 metallic polyester thread in silver, some Silver LIned Crystal AB 6/0 beads, a few 4mm fire polish crystals in Crystal AB and daggers in a lovely colorway called Spectrum.
The daggers are silver on one size and a glowing iridescent melding of pinks and violets and greens on the other.
Your kit will include a spool of this thread, four silver ear wires (i.e. 2 pairs), and enough beads, crystals, and daggers to make at least two pairs of earrings.
Note, however, that the kit will not automatically include the pattern.
We offer three options. Anyone who has made jewelry kits of ours which use a similar method -- our Frosted Leaf , Golden Birch, Japanese Maple and Dragon's Treasure Necklaces to name a few -- may feel very rightly that they do not need instruction. If you feel you do not need another pattern, simply choose "No Pattern Needed."
Of course, you might prefer one regardless. And if you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.
We also can email the pattern to you via email, though I have to do it manually and usually send it right before I mail the kit (please be patient). Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
